Conspectus of the genus Veronica Linnaeus (Plantaginaceae) in India Priyanka Agnihotri, Veena Dixit and Tariq Husain1 – Pleione 8(1): 9 – 16. 2014.

Abstract This paper deals with the enumeration of the genus Veronica Linnaeus (Plantaginaceae) in India,
a total of 35 taxa have been recorded from India, out of which 32 species are confined to Indian Himalayan Region, while 3 species have extended distribution in the plains of Indian states. Western Himalaya is enriched with 19 species, Eastern Himalaya with 3 species, while other 13 species are common in both. Maximum diversity is observed between 2000 – 2500 m amsl. Veronica is a complex genus having 13 sub-generic taxa widely distributed chiefly in temperate and alpine zones across the world. The group is of high medicinal potential and needs taxonomic and conservation status assessment urgently.

Portion of the key concerning plants of wet areas 
D. Pedicels strongly ascending, making the raceme less than 1 cm wide, capsule acutish or obtuse; upper leaf blades serrate, the lower and those of freely developed basal shoots petioled.
     E. Rachis, pedicels, sepals and capsules glabrous or nearly so; capsule oval in contour, strongly flattened, equalling or slightly exeeding sepals; seeds dull brown ….. 25. V. anagallis-aquatica
     EE. Rachis, pedicels, sepals and capsules glandular pubescent, capsule pyramidal-ovoid, about 1.5 times the length of sepal; seeds brighter brown ……. 26. V. secunda
 
DD. Pedicels spreading, usually distally upcurved, making the raceme over 1 cm wide; capsule usually rounded or slightly retuse; occasionally even acutish; upper leaf blades remotely and often obscurely crenate-serrate, the lowest sometimes slightly petioled, basal shoots scarcely developed; rachis, pedicels and sepals glandular pilose; capsule sparsely so.
     E. Capsule 3-3.5 mm long; style 1-1.7 mm long, usually 1/2 as long as capsule or more; leaves obscurely serrate to entire ……… 27. V. salina
     EE. Capsule 2-2.5 mm long, style 0.5-1 mm long, usually less than 1/2 as long as capsule; leaves usually more serrate, often undulately so …… 28. V. undulata

V. anagallis-aquatica occurs at lower altitudes, scarcely above 2000 m whereas V. salina does not grow below 800 m, ascending to 3300 m or so.

The species (Veronica didyma syn. of Veronica polita) is quite distinct from V. persica in smaller pinkish flowers, pedicels shorter than subtending leaves (bracts), broadly triangular ovate leaves (usually broader than long), capsule with rounded lobes, diverging at acute angle or almost subparallel, covered with longer glandular hairs mixed with shorter simpler hairs, broader calyx lobes overlapping at base.
European V. agrestis L. has ovate leaves, longer than width, fruit covered with only glandular hairs and shorter style. 
V. persica, though closer to V. didyma is much different in leaf shape and size, length of pedicel and fruit, which has a widely diverging sinus (obtuse angle) and keeled lobes in fruit. Flower is also larger.
V. arvensis, though having similar leaves is much different with subtending bracts much smaller than foliage leaves and aggregated in terminal inflorescence. also the pedicels are much smaller

Veronica (‎Plantaginaceae) : 1 post by 1 author

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Veronica (Pl. click).

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


Pl. go throughVeronica‎ ‎(Plantaginaceae) page with comparative images of species in efloraofindia. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details.

May I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
